  1. R Script in Power BI Report Server

    Enable R Script in Power BI Report Server - In the manufacturing environment quality tools are essential, specific S.P.C. (Statistical Process Control). So, for example Quality Control Charts library help us with statistical data analysis in Power BI Desktop, but in Report Services R Script is not enabled. This is an incredible opportunity to delivery assertive information to data customers make their quick decisions based on Power BI RS. In the other post R Visual is not planned, but think fondly in this possibility!

        • Hide Filters pane on Power BI Report Server

          Is there any possiblity to hide Filters pane in Power BI Report server. We don't want to show the filters been used to external clients in our report for unnecessary discussion on calls.

          Something like &filterPaneEnabled=false in Power BI Report Server

          • Export Report Server Power BI report to PDF

            Please add the capability to export Report Server PowerBI reports to formats like pdf, word, powerpoint. Some of this functionality exists in the service but please add it to Report Server.

              Thanks for the feedback – we have this in our plans for the service and a future release of Power BI Report Server. I will update the status as soon as we’ve started work on this highly requested feature!

              • Increase the data export row limit (30,000 rows max) in Power BI Report Server

                The capability to export raw data from Power BI is an important function for many users.

                Presently, the export data limits are as follows and confirmed at the community link below.

                - Power BI Service (cloud platform): 150,000 row maximum
                - Power BI Report Server (on-premise platform): 30,000 row maximum

                Please increase the export limit setting on Report Server to match that of Service. Better yet, increase them both to a much higher limit as requested by others in separate idea posts.

                • Home (Preview) or Custom Landing Page

                  It would be nice that there is an option to set the new Home or other page chosen by the users to be the default landing page when opens Power BI.

                  By now when I sign in Power BI the first page I see is "My Workspace" or a featured dashboard. It would be better if the user can chose what to see first.

                  • Security/Data Driven visibility- Show/Hide report elements/pages based on Security

                    I have a SSAS Tabular model and a PBI dashboard that has a live connection on this model.

                    What I want to accomplish is hide/show buttons/bookmarks based on security and data inside the SSAS tabular model.
                    I don't think this is possible in PBI bookmarks now but it would be a key feature.

                    This feature is actually blocking us from going Prod.

                    • Power BI Report Server Developer Edition

                      Provide a Developer licensed version of Power BI Report Server that is free. This will provide many more paid users in the end. SQL Server has a free Developer Edition.

                      • Persistent Filters

                        In our Report Server deployment the most frequent request by end users is: “Give me a prefiltered (eg. by departement) version of the standard report so that I will not have to spend time on filtrering” - the request is valid - but with more than 100 departments maintaining such a setup becomes extremely time consuming - therefore I suggest bringing Persistent Filters to Report Server - it would dramatically reduce the time needed to maintian a enterprise
                        scale BI deployment - and would be a kikker-feature for Power BI Report Server (and align features beteeen cloud and on-prem)
                        Filters…

                        • Allow to pass more url-parameters to set lay-out when using IFrame

                          Our company is using Power BI Reportserver. Our reports are included in our CMS with the ?rs:embed=true option.

                          It would be great to pass more options to the report:

                          Example
                          - EnableParameterBar: Option to disable the parameterbar. Default TRUE
                          - EnableTabBar: Option to disable the tabbar shown at the bottom of de report. Default TRUE

                              Add a setting on power BI report server to enable report to auto refresh and display fullscreen.
                              As well as a setting to hide all tool bars so that extensions do not need to be added into url.

                              • datepicker

                                The date picker for the SSRS/paginated reports needs to have more advanced options. Most modern date pickers allow you to navigate dates more quickly by clicking on the month and the calendar view will dynamically change. An example can be found here: https://demos.telerik.com/kendo-ui/datepicker/index . Please add a more advanced datepicker.

                                      In case of multiple tabs in a report, we want to load specific tabs when a report is embed using Iframe. Right now rc:Section paramter does not work. We want a similar functionality.

                                        • Create Power BI Report in Report Server using shared dataset created with Report Builder

                                          We should be able to create Power BI Reports inside Report Server using shared dataset created with Report Builder since there is no option to share datasets throught PBI Reports.
